    Please give information on your online classes. Thank you.

  3. Hi. Could you please send info on your dog class and watercolor lettering? I am interested in both.
    Thank you!

    Love your site! You are very talented!

  5. I am one of vals students. You will enjoy her classes.. : )

  6. Val,
    I just saw the dog and kittens class!!! Yeah, dogs and kitties are my personal favorite. Will they be available after the fairies? I sure hope so.
    Thank you

  7. The Fairies class will be my 5th class with Val. I began with NO art experience other than photography. I was amazed to be able to follow her very detailed instructions which resulted in lovely results. Val’s critiques are very helpful and point up both the positive and less-than-positive features of each assignment. I found it beneficial to watch the video first, then work on the warm-up and finally the project … while watching the video again, stopping it as appropriate to complete the instruction and starting it for the next step. That way you are working right along with Val as if she were sitting next to you. Most helpful so that you don’t forget a step along the way as she uses many techniques to complete each project! Enjoy!!!! Carole Jurack

  8. Hi Val, I sent you an email yesterday regarding to the online class, would be great if you could reply me. Many thanks! Xenia

  9. when is next watercolor lettering class?

  10. When is the next session of Drawing Dogs & Cats?

    • Hi, Sharon! The next session of my online course, Drawing Dogs & Cats, will start on July 21. I have posted the details on my “Upcoming Online Courses” page. I hope you will join in the fun. 🙂

  11. Your classes are highly recommended. I am wondering if you do any classes on gardens, more emphases on flowers and gardens than the inhabitants, birds, fairies, etc. I am a beginner and the beautiful creatures are beyond my ability level.

    Thanks for reply and information

  12. This looks wonderful. Will you be offering classes after mid-April too?

  13. Kelly Cobb said:

    Hi Val, I have some art experience but have not taken the first fairies class… Should I go ahead and take the second class or wait for the first class in May? I just want to make sure I am getting the most out of the classes.

    • Hi Kelly! Thank you for asking about the Fairies II class. Because it is the continuation of the earlier class and refers frequently to techniques taught during those first 10 lessons, it is only offered for those who have already taken the first course. I’ll be offering the first one again in May — the new dates will be posted in a week or so.

  14. Is the Draw and Paint Fairies in Nature considered the first Fairies class? I only ask because I wanted to try Fairies II but needed to take Fairies I.

  15. Hello, just wondering if the watercolour lettering class will be coming up again ease? Thankyou! X

  16. kindredspirit said:

    I would like to take your watercolor lettering class but I did not get a response to my email…

    • Hi, Mary! Thanks for letting me know — the email was sent Dec. 3 and did not bounce back. Possibly in your spam filter? But I am so glad you are interested in the upcoming course, and I have just sent a copy of the email. See you soon!

  17. Pam Beason said:

    Hi Val –

    When will you offer your herb class next?

    Pam (previous student)

    • Hi Pam! I’m converting all my previous online courses to an “anytime” on demand format, so you can take it whenever you like and keep the video access for a full year. I will announce it as soon as I have finished the format change — probably in about 2 weeks. Thank you so much for asking!

  18. Thank you. Don’t know which one to begin with. Very excited you are offering these. Can’t wait to get started. hl

    Hi Val
    I love all your courses! they are so well put together.
    quick question:
    are the non animal courses also going to be available once purchased for the full year?or do they have a limited access period?

  20. Ruth Olin said:

    Hi Val,

    Looking forward to the post card class. How about watercolor reflection on water. I would love to learn how to do that.

  21. Roxanne Scelp said:

    Will you be offering the Draw Paint Letter class again?

  22. Val, I just viewed you class on the sketchbook revival. Loved it! Thank you for sharing. I am trying to get back to the basics and incorporate more simplicity and exploring sketching and watercolors again. Thank you also for sharing so many free printables and I find that your class pricing is so reasonable. Thank you for sharing you talents with us!

  23. I write Children’s Books and want desperately to afford your courses. This month I joined Sketchbook Revival and was pleased to come across your link:) I pray to be able to illustrate my stories🦋. Your online classes may be the answer to that 🙏 prayer.

    • Thanks, Tina! I work very hard to keep the prices super low on my courses, so people can enjoy them without incurring a big expense. The supply lists are always as simple as possible, for the same reason. Best wishes for success with your children’s book. I hope you will be able to join me!

  24. O purchased a class and have not heard from you as to how to access it

  25. incredible artwork!
    love the birds!
